Undisputed British Cruiserweight Championship
El Phantasmo Vs. Ryusuke Taguchi
Durning Best of the Super Juniors, El Phantasmo would thrive on his way to the end of the tournament. Differences would be known, and confidence would be shown during one of the most widespread tournaments known around the world. ELP would reach close to the finals. However, Ryusuke Taguchi would stand in the way. Some say it was arrogance that caused ELP to underestimate his opponent, others would say that Taguchi was not on the same completive level as the Undisputed British Cruiserweight Champion.
Ryusuke Taguchi would then take ELP out of the advantage of being in the finals of the tournament by taking the win away from him. ELP would state this a fluke and he was lucky. El Phantasmo would gain a second championship but this was not enough to sooth the ego of the champion. A challenge would be issued for the Revpro Undisputed Cruiserweight belt at Taguchi’s home.
El Phantasmo would retain in 24 minutes 04 seconds in less than half the time limit of the match with a CR2.

Could YOSHI-HASHI do the unthinkable and secure entry to the toughest tournament in wrestling by unseating the record three times Undisputed British Heavyweight Champion?
